Acts of Civil Disobedience

My twin boys Aubrey and Erik regularly commit Acts of Civil Disobedience.

No, they are not civil rights crusaders, nor are they proponents of Mohandas Ghandi. They have no idea who he is.

Ambitious 29 Year Old Woman Kidnapped...

And replaced with an unsure mother.



Have you ever felt, by becoming a mom, you have lost all traces of the former person you used to be? Have you ever looked in the mirror at your disheveled hair, clothes stained with baby milk, and dark circles and wondered what happened to that savvy, well-manicured, vibrant woman who used to inhabit the person who now knows more about Bubble Guppies then the economic bubble?



Maybe its the fact that we spend a substantial part of our… Continue

How We Roll

Although spring officially sprung a while ago, we still get flurries that accumulate on top of our mud and melting snow.  Overall, it's still a fairly wintery world out there in Vermont, although the temperatures are rising.  It's been warm enough to bring our kids outside, but there's nowhere to bring them!  Anywhere that is plowed is a parking lot or other potential hazard.  Anywhere that isn't knee-deep in snow is ankle-deep in mud.  But the sun is smiling its yellowy…

How Disney Brings Out the Liar in Me

I was recently given an amazing opportunity from my friends at Disney Canada to attend the Disney Social Media Moms conference in Orlando. I jumped at the chance – by March, who doesn’t need to get a hit of that happy drug the Big Mouse deals out?

The added bonus was that this conference is a family getaway….well, for a family of four, anyway. Once I got a friend to agree to come…

Joy of Luck #7: My Rainbows

Today is the last Joy of Luck assignment, and it ends on a high note.  We are to consider (and photograph) our own personal rainbow, in a metaphorical sense.  What will bring me luck in the future?  What blessings do I have to look forward to?  That one was pretty easy for me, since my family is such a blessing and I can only consider myself lucky for having the people and babies in my life that I…

Bibbiddi Bobbiddi Boutique at Disney World

The Bibbidi Bobbiddi boutique at Disney World was an awesome experience. I went into it thinking it wouldn't be worth the money but when it was all done I can not wait to take my daughter to do this again someday, if she wants to.

We got the Crown package,… Continue

Sugaring

This weekend I was initiated into Vermonterhood.  I did something that every true blue Vermonter considers just another day, yet I had never done it before.  Our family, plus Nana and Papa and some friends of theirs, went to a sugar house and tried some fresh maple syrup, literally fresh out of the tap.

Defrosting

We're defrosting up here in the extreme northeast.  Up here in the boondocks.  We are quickly approaching the fifth season of the year.  Oh?  You thought there were only four seasons?  Oh, right.  You must live somewhere other than Vermont.  I use to think there was only four, too.

 

Welcome to Mud Season.

My Life (and Death) with Laundry



By Kristin Fast, Lifestyle Editor and In-House Wit-Cracker

With the rare exception, I do a load or two of laundry everyday… every. Single. Day. We are a family of 5, with two of those five being teenage boys… (teenage boys will wear three shirts in one day, but the same pair of pants for a week) which I am sure makes it clearer why I am engaged in a…

The Here Today, Gone Tomorrow Dad

As a mom, especially an overprotective mom, I have that need to shield my teens from anything and everything that can hurt them. Broken glass, boxes of twinkies, school bullies, drunken drivers, burning buildings, pubescent boys who only have their penis and girls' boobies on the brain. But how, how do I shield my teenage girls from their father?



How do I…

Trying to "Have it All" and Feeling Guilty About it, Too

When I started this blog recently, my first post was about the quest that many women go on in order to "have it all."

What exactly does that mean?

Well, for the most part, it means that http://bit.ly/gsU2EN

Snow Day

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com

 

Monday was an unexpected snow day.  After a weekend of rain and temperatures reminiscent of spring, winter came back to rear its very ugly head.  So ugly it destroyed our grill with one gigantic piece of ice leaping off the roof onto our deck.  (Must have done something to do deserve that kind of karma, Grillmaster…

Laundry Hell

I have been relegated to Laundry Hell for all eternity. Or at least it seems that way. Perhaps "Hell" is not the place where I find myself. Perhaps it is a Laundry Limbo of sorts; at least with this option there is hope of future salvation. http://bit.ly/h2SqeW

"Run Them Like Dogs"

I was very pregnant with my twin boys, when Dave, my neighbour at the time, offered some unsolicited yet very astute advice.



We had run into him unexpectedly at our local neighbourhood bakery on a cold January afternoon.When hearing that my babies-to-be would be identical twin boys, this wise man, a father of two boys himself, imparted the following advice in getting through the rearing of these children: "Feed them lots of meat and run them like dogs." … Continue
